5th Annual Race Against Capitalism!

June 17, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Hi all,

The Race Against Capitalism is BACK!

On Saturday, June 17th we are organizing a 5K (3mi) and 10K (6mi) starting and ending on the Southside of Prospect Park.

It will start at 10AM!

There will be radical water stations along the route, a kid-created finish line, and will end with a BBQ nearby to recover and keep the fundraising going! Kids games/childcare can be available while you run.

Sliding scale is $5-$40 which is way cheaper than most races in this crazy city and your money will not go to a corporate sponsored race. All proceeds instead are going to the scholarship fund for getting low-income and unemployed folks to Socialism 2017, sponsored by the Center for Economic Research and Social Change.

You can register HERE (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1SeBbET3fTzU2DcEaO1gLYE1HdBnzVGgHCee-FVDF53M/viewform )

Those that raise above $40 (by asking friends and family to sponsor them) will receive all you can eat BBQ ticket and some other goodies!
